In 2016 we held a fundraiser for Nick Nigro. Nick was perfectly healthy until complications from West Nile Disease led to a massive coronary and lack of oxygen to the brain. Now he is suffering brain damage and is relearning as much as possible to live the best life possible.
The funds that we raised paid for some home therapy equipment and some therapies. We have heard the same story over and over. When something like this happens, the insurance company decides "this person is not going to make any further progress. We won't pay for any additional therapy". Nick is a shining example of that statement being not true. He has made progress and is continuing to make progress 1-1/2 years later.
